NEXT MEETING: June 3rd, 6:30pm – 9pm
Meet your Neighbors! Julie Wittmann has been conducting a three year study of Sonoma County reptiles and amphibians, enlisting the help of smartphone-wielding citizen scientists to help document amphibian and reptile sightings and the changing environments where they thrive. Think you know all your neighbors? Well, chances are, there’s a critter that lives in your neighborhood that you didn’t know existed (yes, that’s a challenge). With the help of all the volunteer eyes out there observing, Julie has helped refine our knowledge of our cold-blooded county residents – Come and find out more about them all, and learn how to turn your smartphone into a research tool.
Presenter: Julie Wittmann is a credentialed science teacher, certified University of California Naturalist and a Sonoma State Biology graduate student with a passion for including the general public and the use of citizen science smartphone technology into areas involving herpetofauna education and research.
This meeting will be held Saturday, June 3 at 6:30pm at the Petaluma Wildlife Museum. 201 Fair Street, Petaluma. The Museum is on the campus of Petaluma High School, at the upper end of the large solar-panel covered parking lot.
